Updated roadmap for 2012

Product 13/12/2011 by Johnny Troset Andersen

Our roadmap for 2012 has been updated! Read on to learn more.
 
Release 2012.1
Introduction of the first version of Forms to replace the Single Object Page concept. Single Object Page will not be removed in this release.
 
Forms will include the following:
  • Changing Color scheme similar to Microsoft Office (e.g. see File / Options / General in Microsoft Outlook 2010).
  • Custom layout and organization of elements within a form, giving more flexibility in designing your forms.
  • New common controls like Button, List Box, Table, Radio Button, Color Picker, Track Bar, Progress Bar, in addition to the existing Text- and Number Edit, Combo Box, Date Picker, Image Editor, Check Box, Html Editor and RTF Editor.
  • New controls for Analysis, Reporting and Visualization like Chart and Pivot Table.
  • Support for multiple and related data sources within the same form. Dependencies between data sources and controls are expressed by defining logic elements such as rules, data filters, and formulas.
  • Improved dynamic content: Conditional formatting and protection of controls.
  • Association of custom actions with controls.
 
Support for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2 is terminated. The last version to include support for these operating systems was release 2011.3.
 
The release is expected sometime in the period from mid-February to mid-March 2012.
 
Coming later in 2012
Introduction of Map and Gauge controls.
 
The run time engine (Core Event Handler) for Table, extended to manage Forms and Action. The closer integration between Actions and Table/Form, enhances the functionality provided by concepts such as Rules and Task.
 
OpenSearch compatible web services, i.e. allowing publishing of search results in a format suitable for syndication and aggregation, like RSS.
 
Definition of non-persistent Object Classes and Properties which improves logic and workflow support in action-based concepts such as Tasks, Web Services, Agents, and Rules.
 
Possible introduction of support for synchronization of appointments and emails between Genus Logix and Exchange Server 2010 or later.
 
The Single Object Page concept will be removed during 2012. Details of the transition from Single Object Page to Forms will be announced later.
